Thank you! I have only positive things to say about this course. (e.g. my reviews of the following parts of this course). Professor Jason Hafner did a marvelous job, the content, the experiments, the setting, everything was up to the highest standard, Thanks you!

Great course. Professor Hafner has a good concepts explanation. He is funny, too. This course helps me understand more about Physics as well as prepare for the AP Physics 1 exam. I hope this course, other courses in the series, and the textbook will help me do well in the upcoming exam!

Professor Hafnor clearly enjoys physics. This is an awesome introduction to linear motion. The material is presented in lecture style videos and accompanied by videos related to homework type problems. The material is presented clearly and precisely with little need to refer to the free online text or other outside sources. Homework is slightly challenging but definitely reinforces the concepts presented in the videos. The unit labs present an opportunity to take measurements, make adjustments, apply recently learned material and solve problems in an interactive online environment. The course is geared toward high school students or as an introductory college level course. Professor Hafnor and his “accomplices” really try to make physics fun. They seem interested in the material and their students. They were accessible and didn’t feel like they were thousands of miles (kilometers) away. Overall I would give this course an ...

If they fix a few inconsistencies, microseconds vs. milliseconds and a few glitches and add one more stupid physics trick, this course would absolutely receive an “A+”. Thanks for a great course!
